54" Pipe Needed

110 Views, 1 Replies

I need 54" Pipe for a water line I am designing but C3D 2013 Pressure Pipes only goes up to 48".

Is there a way to create a 54" Pressure Pipe that behaves the same way that the other Pipes

do in the C3D 2013 Pressure Pipe program?

Joe:

 

I finally go around to trying something.  Here is what I came up with.  The HELP (may it rest in peace) says that we cannot add a size but we can change an existing one.  I can only assume you can do this since I am using 2014.

 

1.  I opened up the Catalog Editor (You will find this within the START menu under Programs-> Autodesk->Autocad Civil 2013-> Content Catlog Editor.

2.  I used Flanged Piping and picked out a size that I did not need.  Changed all the required information

(I.E., inside diam, wall thickness, outside diam, etc. and made a 54" Pressure Pipe like you wanted.

 

You need to set the Catalog Current (the one we used above.)

 

I drew a profile for ONE PIPE, NO Fittings.  Added a second pipe and it seemed to work.  Obviously, the fittings must be changed if you need some.
